Privacy policy

Validity

This data protection declaration informs users about the type, extent and purposes of the collection and use of person-related data by the provider responsible for wir machen das e.V. (i.G.), Postfach 61 02 54, 10924 Berlin, verein@wirmachendas.jetzt on this website (hereafter: “site”).

The legal basis for the data protection is contained in the German Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG) and Telemediengesetz (TMG).

Access data/server log files

The provider (or her webspace provider) collects data on every access to the site (called server log files). The access data includes:

Name of the website accessed, file, date and time of visit, amount of data transferred, report on successful access, browser type plus version, user’s operating system, referrer URL (previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.

The provider uses this protocol data solely for statistical evaluation for the purpose of running, securing and optimising the site. The provider reserves the right, however, to check the protocol data subsequently if specific indications raise suspicion of unlawful use.

Treatment of person-related data

Person-related data is information that can be used to identify a person; i.e. details that can be traced to a particular individual. This includes name, email address and telephone number. However, information on preferences, hobbies, memberships or websites viewed is also person-related data.

The provider only collects, uses and passes on person-related data if this is legally permitted or the user provides permission for the data collection.

Contact

When making contact with the provider (for example via contact form or email) the user’s information is saved for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in case subsequent questions arise.

Comments and contributions

Users’ IP addresses are saved when they write comments on the blog or make other contributions. This is done for the provider’s security, should anyone write unlawful content in comments and contributions (insults, illegal political propaganda, etc.). In this case, the provider can be held responsible for the comment or contribution and therefore has a justified interest in the writer’s identity.

Cookies

Cookies are small files that enable the storage of information on the user’s access device (PC, smartphone, etc.) specific to the device. They are used to improve user-friendliness of websites and are therefore of benefit to users (e.g. saving login data). They are also used to collect statistical data on the website’s use and to analyse this data for the purpose of improving the site. Users can influence the use of cookies. Most browsers offer an option to restrict cookies being saved or prevent it entirely. Please note that use and particularly user comfort are limited when cookies are blocked.

You can manage many online advertising cookies via the U.S. site http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU site http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices/.

Retraction, Changes, Corrections and Updates

Users have the right to obtain information free of charge on application, pertaining to the person-related data stored about them. Additionally, users have the right to the correction of incorrect data and the blocking or deletion of their person-related data, as long as the provider is not required by law to save this information.
